, president bush was leading democratic challenger john kerry by 11 percentage points just fryer to the first presidential debate. right after the debate, which just about everybody thought that kerry had won, president bush was leading by only two points. and you know, it really didn't change a whole lot until the end of the campaign. president bush won by three points. jenna: very interesting. we see senator kerry on the screen. a lot of things we talk about, larry, is turnout when it comes to this election and how important turnout really is going to be. do debates affect turnout? >> absolutely because the turnout battle is really a battle of enthusiasm in the two party bases and, you know the romney people have been pretty frank. paul ryan was very frank over the weekend in saying the ticket has had a tough couple weeks. when you have a tough couple weeks you're enthusiasm level can decline. a good performance in a presidential debate can gin party enthusiasm. that may happen on wednesday for either side. we'll have to see what transpires in the debate. jenna: we always have to wait to ac

vegas. why is he premising there for the colorado debate? >> i remember covering john kerry in the final debate against president bush. so he did debate prep in new mexico. it was battleground state so you get the practice and being in this local media market and getting some attention. this is foreclosure capital here in united states. unemployment is higher than the national average. this should be fertile ground to make his case for mitt romney that the country is not better off. bottom line if you look at the public polling, it's extremely tight suggesting that the president despite the tough economy even in nevada is still holding up pretty well. >> gregg: ed in las vegas, double down on 11 and split your face cards. >> i'll send you some of the cash. >> heather: coming up a police chief of a small new mexico border town leaving residents with one cop and a dog to protect them. what made the chief leave. and bus driver unknowingly he says drugged is put on unpaid leave. should he be punished for something out of his control? our panel weighs in after this break. of hardest-working,
. then david akle rod and david plouffe * contradicted each other. john kerry says he's deeply disturbed because you are putting politic ahead of fact finding on a national security matter. >> i find that unfortunate. what we want to do is get to the bottom what happened. we have spent 11 years and we have been fighting al qaeda in what we see now is rather -- when you say okay, things are under control in iraq, they are under control in afghanistan. but they metastasized in north africa. bill: we'll hear a lot of this in the debates, too. to our viewers at home. if you have questions, hemmer@foxnews.com is the e-mail. lines are open right now. 11 minutes before the hour. martha: one high school teacher is facing serious charges after allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill a former colleague and it was all caught on tape. bill: a stunning win at the ryder cup. europe did the impossible which is what we did to europe 15 years ago. a series of missteps by team usa. they lose the ryder cup out of chicago. i was depressed all night. look at that 6-footer. and even fewer that make moms hap

could prove to be a huge opportunity for him. i think it was back, when john kerry was going against w, and i think he was behind eight points. after that debate, that one of the crucial presidential debates it was basically a one-point race at that point. so. >> he need a night like that. and mitt romney did very well in the -- in the, debates during the primaries. very well. belt better than a lot. he need one of those nights. >> he has been preparing for the debates for three years. >> there you go. sure they got it all memorized. they got their zirngz reangers . >>> the government's troubled gun tracking program, called fast and furious. dozens of more weapons rather that were part of the investigation are being linked to crimes in mexico. our partners at univision, report 57 pref yufsly undiscovered guns connect to fast and furious have now been found at the sites of murders, kidnappings and brutal massacres. >>> breaking news from afghanistan overnight. nato says three of its troops have been killeden a bombing. the interpreter also died. this comes after an american service memb
senator john kerry, who has been there himself. >> what happens during these mock debates? >> they do not talk a lot about what happens during these. what they try to do is try to set a situation that is as realistic as possible for the actual debate. they do it at the same time and night the debate will take place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to boast -- to vice- president alkyl and joe -- al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points. -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more debt -- depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early.

between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believe had helped president bush. more recently, the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly, eureeka, this is so surprising, so amazing but rather people nod, yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> that is so fascinating. dana bash is live from our washington bureau. so, question, do some think friday's jobs report from the labor department, could that be an october surprise? >> sure. why not, carol? at this point, anything coul
, which is, of course, a key battleground state, going through the debate camp. senator john kerry playing the role of governor romney. that's good for two reasons at least for the obama campaign because he knows mitt romney very well, coming from the state of massachusetts, but also is veteran debater himself. he's been helping the president out. now, the thing that we'll be watching for is what the real push will be from the obama campaign. and the romney campaign tonight in terms of their overall theme. as you know, it is all about domestic policies, so they're talking about the economy, about health care, about the role of government, what the president will do, according to top campaign aides is say, yes, look, the economy still has a long way to go. but it is in a much better place than it was and it is heading in the right direction. mitt romney will say that the president has had time to fix the economy, and there has been a lot of broken promises. so that's what we'll expect from both of the candidates as they take on each other tonight during the first debate. >> dan lothian repo
